Technical Director of Ghana Football Association, Francis Oti Akenteng has rejected calls for the country's governing body to employ a new person.

According to him, he is fit for the job as he has gone to other countries and has helped to put things in order with regards to their football.

He averred that he has written books and all that the new GFA needs to be do is implementation.

Speaking to Angel FM Oti said: "I've gone to several countries to restructure their technical directorate and it is working very well. 

"The technical director should be empowered and that a native person has the capacity to do the work.

He, however, said he will walk away should the GFA ask him to go step aside for a new person.
